Soprano? Or just a fat slob! He said that the taxes would not be raised, but all of the towns in NJ raised their taxes any way. How much more money for parkway tolls? If we didn't break it, why do we have to fix it? It's not our falt that they miss spend our money, so why do we have to pay for it? Please bring back the original democratic party that believed in the working mans rights, not the new liberal one that gives our money away to whom them deem unfortunate. Then things will go back to normal, after and when we finally take our country back!!!

I know I am gonna get slammed here for saying this, but I'm going to nonetheless. You really have to read the whole aritcle on this.... The Vet in question is a known troublemaker at all these town meetings. Not just with Christie. This is NOT the first time he has been asked to leave a public Polictical meeting. Did Christie handle it appropriately probably not. BUT did the Navy Seal(which by the way shows NO Bearing) show proper respect to his Gov. ? I think not. Its really a two way street, no ? Just bc this man served in the Armed Forces doesn't mean he should be shown any different respect when he infact did the same thing. If you want to be treated with respect then you better damn well show respect !!! I am by no means saying I agree with the way Christie handled it but if it had been me and that guy, navy seal or not, heckled me like he did and did not conduct himself in an adult civil manner like he was asked to in the first place, I think I would have answered him the same way ! Not everyone will agree with what A GOVERNOR will do or say, but that does not give you the right to act this way, at a public meeting no less, unless you are LOOKING for the attention which is JUST what he(the navy seal) was doing(and is famous for doing). Just my Opinion....

This is the same Gov. who said I thought the (4) year battle to bring down the METH LAB next to a MILITARY FAMILY on Nautilus in Lacey TWP. was handled! He should have investigated this dangerous situation for himself. SHAME on you Gov. * By the way, the last (2) Gov.'s of ILL. are in jail for CORRUPTION. Our Gov. should CLEAN-UP OCEAN COUNTY. CHILDREN ARE DYING. I once respected you Gov. Christie!

it make no difference if the man is a troublemaker at meetings, etc. An elected publie servant should have the intellengence and common sense to know how to talk and get his point across without being NASTY. Christie is a big mouth bully. If you don't agree with him he resorts to loud obnoxious reply...
